, there is nothing positive, the environment, like the stock market, you have an environment that is positive. it goes up. so much is based on psychology. the environment in the business world is not positive. the environment that comes out of washington is all negative. and, i can't say we make decisions based upon tax codes. in our business, we're in a business of opportunity. i say we have three under construction because this environment creates opportunities. if you have some cash. landlords are willing to take a lesser rent if you will. employment is available because people aren't working. there are, out of the nonworking a bunch of that really do want to work and kacht find jobs. i can't say everybody that doesn't work wants to work. those opportunities present themselves we move forward. >> president will say he has cut taxes for small businesses. i what do you say to that? >> absolutely not. he can say whatever he wants to say. it is all very, patronizing the electorate. lauren: yeah. >> unfortunately this election on both sides very honestly there is a lot of credibility gaps. i wo

the regulatory environment will look like next year. they don't know what demand will look like next year. and so, because of these uncertainties as a result of the fiscal cliff and the fact that we haven't had any policies really coming out of congress and the white house to really fix this, it's all been monetary policy, the federal reserve has really been the only one out there, the only game in town to really provide stimulus for this economy. we don't have an energy policy. we haven't had a budget in three years. as a result, businesses are waiting to see what happens in this election, and they're waiting to see what their lives will look like tax rates, regulation, etc., they're upset about the healthcare expense, so they're waiting until after the election to really decide if, in fact, they will hire new workers and put new money to work. i think we really are in standstill right now. host: here's the headline, "wall street braces for an obama win." mitt romney was wall street street's candidate, a former private equity executive, committed to lower taxes and less regulation, who would nev
's also helping our environment. kristin fisher explains how. >> reporter: the opening of a new metro bus facility may not seem like a big deal, but the last time that this happened was back when buses like this ruled the streets. this is the first new metro bus facility in 23 years and it took three years and $97 million to build. it's called the shepard parkway metro bus division and it sits on 16 acres of land in southwest washington. it has parking spaces for 250 buses, massive state of the art maintenance bays, a bus wash, fueling station. it's also metro's first building to obtain the lead silver certification. the greener facility is good for the environment and also good for the 400 employees that will be working here. there's even skylights in the garages. >> 400 plus employees who now have a facility that encourages and indeed makes possible greater production and workplace satisfaction. >> obviously we'll be able to improve and maintain our vehicles much better than we have in the past, especially for those who ride the buses in the southeast and the southwest of the district.

environment for compromise. so, things have always work themselves through and i think they will now but that fiscal cliff thing is looming as a real problem and it doesn't have to be because the basic guts of it are good and i think having, relying on the central bank to shoulder all the burden of charging the economy and abandoning the fiscal side because of the difficulty in the political process you know is unfair and gives us a skewed and unfair view of the rio i think in a lot of ways courage. whether it works or not is still open to debate and people are certainly exercising their power to grant it fully but if you are -- if only one side of the car is driving you will go in circles. >> we just had simpson-bowles and two years too late with a couple trillion dollars extra debt on top. >> sometimes the policy needs that time to sort out. the fact that it's an efficient in the long term, the efficiencies we take in order to get people to throw in, the long-term is what makes the system stable. so i'm not worried that we will get it and let me say on the more optimistic side peop
in an environment, at least i was fortunate enough where we believed that it is perfectible. in a, it's very -- i think pretty much it's a acceptable or maybe somewhat today to be so critical or almost invariably critical as a country and pointing out what's wrong. there are obviously things around. there are obviously things wrong i grew up in georgia. that was pointed out, but there was always this underlying belief that we were entitled to be a full participant in we the people. that's the way we grow. it was the way the nuns would explain it to us. we were entitled to be full participants. it was never any doubt that we were inherently equal. it said so in the declaration of independence. of course there were times that i to became quite cynical. the remarks and deciding the not so pleasant remarks in reciting the pledge of allegiance or say things that i think would -- whether or not cell phones. people couldn't youtube you and it's around forever. i was just of said. i grew up in an environment with people around me who believed that this country could be better. the framework for it was th

about emotional, financial, social, spiritual and environments, occupational and intellectual as well as physical aspects of ourselves. we call this the eighth dimension model of wellness. this is how we conceptualize wellness. we care about physical wellness because people are physically sick and many are dying 25 years before the general population. we care about intellectual wellness because we need healthy minds and healthy bodies in the knowledge to reclaim and manage our lives in recovery. we care about social wellness because the conditions bring about social isolation, leading people further from their healthy recovery. we care about spiritual wellness because disease, all these diseases, robs us of our sense of meaning, purpose and spiritual connectedness. we care about mental and emotional wellness week as people need clear, wide lines in order to live productive lives and pursue recovery. we care about environmental wellness because it's impossible for people to feel better or well in places or spaces where there is overcrowding, stress, pollution and other toxins in both p
this environment protected. they know that these toxic waste dumps should have been cleaned up a long time ago, and they know that people's lives and health are being risked, because we've had an administration that has been totally insensitive to the law and the demand for the protection of the environment. the american people want their children educated. they want to get our edge back in science, and they want a policy headed by the president that helps close this gap that's widening between the united states and europe and japan. the american people want to keep opening doors. they want those civil rights laws enforced. they want the equal rights amendment ratified. they want equal pay for comparable effort for women. and they want it because they've understood from the beginning that when we open doors, we're all stronger, just as we were at the olympics. i think as you make the case, the american people will increasingly come to our cause. >> mr. mondale, isn't it possible that the american people have heard your message -- and they are listening -- but they are rejecting it? >> well, to
of sights. this show their homes are no longer imploding. is that enough for this environment where we expect so little to help the president is that enough? >> that is correct. sandra is right, next 30 to 45 days are critical. you have average 401(k) balance about 107,000, and s&p 500 un14% plus year-to-date. if you see those gains evaporate, if they go away because of poor macro headlines and higher oil prices that would be the game changer for voters. they don't want to see their brokerage statement and see these numbers start melting away if that is the case that probably both start to change using their wallets, election day. neil: when you look at the data and the market, if the market is 04 licking mechanism in the market, it can be all over the map. it has been the president's trend, an october surprise or cause pause? in other words, there would just but barring that. president dodges a financial bullet. >> one could argue that the stock market is -- has been artificially propped up by the fed's money printing measures. when the market looks today they look at earnings, we're
this is going to work in a wheel world environment. as a result of a valid link this program and everything that went with it, that's what was behind us putting the management changes that we put in place. establishing a centralized program management organization that will bring best practices program management to ensure that we can hit deadlines, we can hit milestones and we can get budgets. that's why we elevated and expanded the responsibility of our nextgen organization so that we can ensure that we have appropriate system integration that we're taking account how one project effects of the projects and schedules and so forth. what we wanted to do was make sure that we were using best practices that are used in any business for managing a large complex undertaking of this sort. it was in june 2011 that we rebaselining to the eram program. at that time we said that that project was going to be three years and 80 must be on schedule because of the problems that i told you about, and it was going to cost $330 million. today, that still exactly where we are. we have hit the milestones tha

compromise with the enemy. it is not going to happen. it is a terrible environment for the big deal that needs to get done. so acknowledge the reality. let's do the deal in 2013 but let's not cause a recession. basically just extend current policy to the extent policy and hope we get 2013 intact. that is my goal. >> doug, let me throw out a theory to get your reaction. the theory is this. that as long as the discussion about tax reform is an ongoing argument about the bush tax cuts -- >> i'm so tired of the bush tax cuts i can barely stand it. >> i think most people would agree. >> they have been talked about for 10 years? can we talk about something else? >> that is exactly the point. as long as you have extended the bush tax cuts, as donald said, only half of this is about the bush tax cuts. >> right. >> but in the public discussion it is the bush tax cuts. so as long as you extend them, can you get out of that debate? conversely if you let them all go. >>, does that change the framing of this we're no longer talking about the bush tax cuts, we're just talking about the tax code a
. when a 6-year-old says it's not fair, what do we say? life is not fair. .. when -- an environment you feel it and you feel that it's unfair. you also have the skills. you have the communication skills. you have the organizing skill, so you the dedication, the organization that it takes to actually make a difference. and i think if we're going see our way out of the largest economy of challenge of our economy -- how do we take care of sick. and the poor? and how do we stop climate change? for us, west to the hypothetical. it's not academic. and the consequences are not insignificant to us because what happens fifty years from now we'll be affected. we'll still -- i plan to be around still, fifty around. i plan to be in office, i hope. i'll be in my 13th term. we have to take that energy and that creativity and that authority and inject it in to our government. at the moment, government is being run by grown-ups over all the world. are too often not getting the job done. bringing in the here just with all of you. not in office, i want to talk a little bit more about the voter, especiall
in identifying and operating in a secure environment. that's were industry comes into play. so i believe this partnership needs to be extended. we did in the physical domain for years under the critical infrastructure protection, cpac, advisory council that was created to address these 18 sectors. i think we can do that again moving in the future. i don't want to speak for shone but i noticed before, working under the confidence of national security initiative under the previous administration, nothing changed by the current administration. i don't assume anything will change in future because of administration. because cyber is a continual. it's not an issue. it's not an element to get something we have to address ongoing. and if you look at the advances that we made under the sea mci and the changes that we made, i think i continuing that capability it will enhance our awareness, enhance our capabilities. >> you talk about the need for sharing information, is there -- one of the stipulations, and this is a sticking point, was what laws should be passed for sharing information, for prot
in on january 1. >> tom: meantime, the environment out there, we sought latest g.d.p. revisi yesterday, a slower economy faster than expected. corporate earnings also slowing down. that's happening regardless of what's going on in the political environment. >> it certainly is. earlier this summer, what was really driving stock prices, in my person was two words-- anticipated stimulus. notice, it's removal of uncertainty, and so i think the real question is will we be seeing a trough in corporate earnings in the third quarter, a trough in u.s. g.d.p., in this or the fourth quarter of the year? or might w be seegroughing a little bit later on for other international g.d.p.s. in general, i think a lot of people are anticipating that maybe the worst will soon be behind us, especially because of all this liquidity that's been pumped into the system over the past several months. >> tom: you've crunched numbers and brought some sectors to watch for next three months, including the technology area here with xlk, being the e.t.f. for the technology sector. has had a nice rally over the last 12 months. wh

of the environment. think about the amount of paper when redrafted the accord. but today we speak of the leadership. for example, according to the oslo accord is available with everyone to pray but it is not safe. we cannot go there. it is not safe. i do not believe in another ceremony at the white house but to and until we get to the point* you have to manage the conflict i want to sum up to tell you the book is very street. they said you are making a mistake if you raise something in a book now what will happen in a few years? people will say 182 about that and what you doing? if somebody wants to lead i can protect and if they cannot i will say was wrong but we will see the public and majority of the american people understand it is not what israel is willing to pay but want to thank you for coming tonight and will be happy if you cave ready to answer the question will be happy to answer your question. thank you very much. [applause] >> don't you think the talk you give tonight encourages the extremist of the muslim world to join israel? there is a struggle between the moderates and the extremis
, by getting a much more sensible regulatory environment and, yes, repealing obamacare. these are the burdens that we've got to remove. >> moderator: now time for our closing statements, and by the order of the coin toss, congressman cantor goes first. cantor: you know, i think what you've seen tonight is certainly a robust discussion, and, um, a debate though, frankly, that has been peppered, unfortunately, with what is wrong with politics today. and that is just a rash of personal attacks, indirect attacks on my family, and as we saw repetitive disregard for honesty and truth. and the thing is, none of these negative attacks do anything to create a job, do anything to educate a child or do anything to bring down the deficit. but attempts at attacks and character assassination the way that mr. powell's been about tonight, frankly, make it a lot harder to solve problems, to compromise, to sit down and actually get something done. but i think that, mr. powell, you underestimate the decency of the voters of the seventh district, and i've had the privilege of representing this district for almos
-growth environment. >> reporter: michelle mier is senior u.s. economist for bank of america. 100,000 plus jobs is healthy but not impressive. >> and think about what we've come off of, the deepest postwar recession and adding about 100,000 or so jobs a month. it's not sufficient. >> reporter: much of the drop in the unemployment rate is due to the growth in part-time jobs. >> . >> i didn't even get responses to my resumes. >> reporter: 56-year-old amy crawford was forced to take a minimum wage job in a chicago restaurant. when she couldn't find full time work as a home designer. >> i'm almost at a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. i'm not confident in the economy. >> reporter: 40% of the unemployed have been out of work six months or more. that number did not drop last month. fed chairman ben bernanke said this week his concern is that growth just isn't fast enough to put people back to work. >> pelley: anthony, you mentioned that about 150,000 jobs are being created each month lately. what kind of difference does that make to the 12 million people who are still unemployed? >> not muc
can be. liz: how do you deal with the low interest-rate environment or refinancing loans and losing a couple basis points on every loan? >> it is true this extended low-interest rate environment is not favorable to bank earnings. liz: ben bernanke ordeal with it? >> i can also understand his position that stimulus hit the economy. it is good for bar worse to have low interest rates and now we have lower rates from short to long it is easier to borrow or give people reasons to borrow so last time we checked we made money when people borrow loans. it is good for us but it does shrink the spread on our loans. that is why you have to be cost-effective, acquiring good clients and looking at how to generate more business. liz: they expects fourth quarter loan growth? >> as we have talked about it we continue to see among our commercial clients that they continue to borrow and acquiring competitors and investing in business and doing things commensurate with an industry that returned to profitability. they are not hiring which is part of why we talk with ben bernanke about q e 3 and the th

a more global environment offers many benefits and increases competition and thus reduce cot cost. it allows for the introduction of new technologies ab cob accepts and supports coalition war fights efforts or makings them less difficult to execute. we can benefit from the lessons learned in efficiency gains from other nations who had militaries that face difficult financial services and forced to drive home the own, quote, better buying power initiative. globalization is frankly not an option. it's a reality. but while buying from a more global environment officers many benefit to the department we must be aware of the significant risks risks. these include but are not limited to the main reason we're here today. the threat of counsel fit or interior parts entering the supply chain, the potential for undue reliance on actually con configuration may not be understood. or the risk of leaked intellectual property to foreign businesses and governments. when it comes to articulating the failure of policy on the subject, particularly as a relate its to cyberspace. one look no further t
and my environment and to me the value of the local and about the city and i am partial to the urban environment. i love it and that is why a study of. i went to public schools my whole life and it was from the teacher who said hey you might like doing this and spent time after school and they introduce me to an excellent opportunity or someone who sat after school with me and went through different topic source said i didn't understand it might debate coach in high school not being paid to spend but spent an extra six hours per week coaching. these are all things that i found made the character of my life and they all happened not by way of some sort of large institutions not by way of -- that was my local experience and what i found in a very homely city and you hear the characterization of cities or urban environments as you get lost and this has not been my experience and this is not what the local represents of returning to what i find to be the salient theme is that cities and local politics and local institutions are really fit on the greatest opportunity. you can truly access
to be at risk in that environment? is it too unstable of an environment for effective security exercise to continue? your thoughts on that. >> i appreciate that question. in 2001, i voted to authorize use of mill tear force in afghanistan. in the days and months following the nen attacks on the united states. it was a very clear and focused megs to go after those who planned and executed that attack. and i believe our brave men and women who went to afghanistan, very capably fulfilled that mission, frankly in fairly short order. i was in afghanistan in august of 2010, in kabul and at bagram air force base. i met with wisconsin soldiers and -- soldiers and folks in the military from the senior ranks to the tissue to those coming back from forward operating bases. you would be so proud of those men and women, but the mission today this nation building mission, is not the one that was authorized. it is now time for them to come home. >> governor thompson? >> my opponent just, i think, misstated. she said she voted for the sanctions against iran. she voted against the sanctions in 2006, 200
of cisco, having the experience that you've had at yahoo! tell me how you see the environment changes and where specifically you would expect growth to happen in technology in the next five years. >> well, i think technology in general -- probably the biggest challenge is not so much the social interactions but everybody's talking so much about data. data is very, very hard to mine correctly. so i think you're going to see a push back towards a lot of enterprise apps that really figure out how it get information to the companies so they can actually be more personalized for the user, but easy to say, a lot to do. >> and really quick, on what you're seeing out there, how tough is europe right now for technology? what are you seeing in terms of the global slow down? >> well, europe continues to baffle us in general in technology. it looks like it's getting softer, not stronger. you know, companies that diversified over the past 20 years do make sure they had good portfolios in all the regions, you know, are taking a hit now with europe. i think it's broad based, so it shouldn't be a kno
with the fact that we're in, to put it lightly, a highly unusual climate and environment right now with long-term interest rates being held at 0% for quite some time. >> well, one of the ironies and one of the sad elements of glad path and target date strategies today is they are pushing people more and more heavily into bond at a time when bond yields with more negative. you're not making money, you're losing money by investing more and more in bonds. so we wind up becoming enablers of bad behavior in washington and supporters of that bad behavior by buying more and more of the bond when yields are negative. >> bob, have you a wonderful reputation and a great record built around the idea that you turn conventional wisdom inside out, whether it's fundamental indexing or this assault on the conventional thinking in target date funds. but i wonder what the real risk to the fund business is if these target date funds -- which certainly imply that you're going to have a set amount of money on a certain date. what if they don't work out and what should the assumptions be if i'm an investor on wha
